Pilot Romain Jantot has one more item to add to his pre-flight checklist: always check for cats.

The Daily Record reports Jantot was teaching a flying lesson in Kourou, French Guinea, when an unexpected stowaway made an appearance.

After a smooth ascent, a cat creeps from its place on the wing toward the cockpit. The feline flyer seemed unfazed by its journey among the clouds, although the pilot chose to cut the trip short.

Jantot uploaded the above video to YouTube on Sunday, where it has since been viewed nearly 400,000 times. He notes the carry-on cat is doing well, saying, "she is still our mascot."
